Generatepress vs Enfold comparison


GENERATEPRESS vs ENFOLD


Enfold vs Generatepress, we test the super-fast charging Generatepress against the multifunctional, well-selling Enfold. Since Enfold comes with its own page builder, we use the Elementor page builder in Generatepress. We'll start with Generatepress which doesn't mean it would be any better.




GENERATEPRESS THEME (Enfold vs Generatepress)

Generatepress theme review


Generatepress is a theme that was specially built to load fast in a browser and it does. Generatepress has practically the same properties as a theme as Astra, the two look are as two drops of water similar. The Generatepress code is compressed only 15kb, so very small.

In the first place, this is a Generatepress Premium review, the free version can be downloaded here but is of course incomplete. So we are talking about the premium version even if we do not always say this. This comes in the form of premium plugins and a library full of 1-click demo websites.

Generatepress Speedtests

In this Generatepress theme review we run a test at GT-Metrix and Pingdom, 2 renowned speed tests to see if it really is that fast. The results are shown in the images below.


Generatepress theme review GtMetrix


At GT-Metrix (above) the Generatepress demo scores 99% and 98%, which means that only 1% of measured sites were faster. Such a small percentage can be quickly influenced by distance to the server and internet speed. At Pingdom (bottom) it also scores 99% and the absolute loading time was 247 msec. A quarter of a second and the complete site has finished loading! These are, of course, phenomenal results. We can safely say that there are no faster Wordpress themes, at the most fast.

Make Generationpress even faster?

Generatepress itself recommends the free plugin Autoptimize which was downloaded more than a million times. Autoptimize allows you to combine and shrink HTML, CSS and JS. It also makes an external file available to the browser with the new code so that browsers can cache it. If you want to know how to set up this plugin perfectly for Generationpress, check the info for that right here.

Generatepress Webshops

Generatepress Premium gives you total control over the popular shop plugin Woocommerce. Pictures speak 100 words fast, watch the video quickly that only takes 2 minutes about Woocommerce adjustments.



Generatepress review Design

The Generatepress design is simple but very beautiful at the same time. Simplicity is the new fashion, people no longer like too much fuss nowadays. Websites should load quickly, look decent on all devices, and everything should work fine. If you were looking for a theme with such features, Generatepress is definitely for you.

Generatepress review Demo designs

Most non-professional people and also some pros like to start a website through a headstart. This can be done by loading a demo website into your theme. Once loaded, it is your job to use the editor to put in your own logo, adjust the images and texts. This way you can quickly create your own design. The image below quickly shows some of these designs, those for Elementor. Those for "without editor", BeaverBuilder et cetera can be quickly found on their own site under the tab "Site library" in the menu.

Generatepress page builders

Generatepress WP-page-builders


As a writer of this Generatepress theme review, I definitely recommend working with one of the top page builders. We are talking about Divibuilder, Elementor, Thrive Architect and BeaverBuilder. Personally, I hate the Gutenberg editor anyway, the former WP editor was much better, which can be seen from the millions of plugin downloads from this classic editor.

Schema Markup

Generatepress has Schema Markup built in. You can use this to add microdata to your HTML or let your theme do this for you automatically. This extra information is liked by Google and therefore Google will present your pages in the search results in a better way. Astra PRO, the biggest competitor of Generatepress, also has a plug-in for it named Schema PRO.

If you want to know how easily and quickly you can adjust your site yourself with Generatepress, watch the short video below as quickly (takes 3 minutes).



Generatepress Premium pricing

For $ 50 you get access to all the plugins and demos that you can install on as many sites as you want. This is the price for a year. Each subsequent year you will get a 40% discount on the price, something few themes offer.

Generatepress Review conclusion

Generatepress is very well constructed, installs easily, the same goes for the demos. It loads really fast and is very clear in terms of control panel and operation. The Premium version offers ample modules to be able to work well while building your layout. If you prefer a theme that loads a little slower but where you really don't miss out on options and settings, I recommend you the Divi Theme.

ENFOLD THEME (Enfold vs GeneratePress)

Enfold Theme review


Enfold is said to be the best rated theme on Themeforest. It is difficult to trace without examining all themes, but we will take it from them. The theme's rating is 4.82 out of 5 and 9912 buyers rated it. That is indeed a very high average, although I know that a theme like Astra scores 4.99. It has to be said that the Astra theme is not sold on Themeforest.

The high rating has its reason and the theme is very easy to set up in a minute or two. The Enfold support theme is also very competent and reacts quickly to tickets. Another point is the beautiful layout of the theme on all devices (PC-laptop-tablet). There are many more pluses, but we will discuss them at ease below.

Enfold Theme review


Enfold not only has a great rating but has since been sold over 224.000+ times which is at least equally impressive and another sign of how good this theme should be. The 9-man team of Kriesi from Austria has already developed many themes, but Enfold is their best project.


Enfold Page Builder

As seen below, with Avia, Enfold's own page builder, you can build your pages super fast. There are better page builders but Avia can certainly be there.

Enfold SEO

Enfold does not want to burden you with a slow loading website and has therefore taken the utmost care to write a clean code. Fast loading websites are simply better visited and people hang around longer. Google also sees which site is fast and which is not, this is again very good for your search results.

Enfold theme review conclusion

You can imagine that much more is possible with Enfold. Therefore, we are not going to bore you with listing every option it has to offer but have limited ourselves to the main features. You can get complete details on Enfold's own site.

Enfold is available for $ 59. That is a standard price for most themes and for Enfold you certainly do not pay too much. The Enfold theme loads fast, you can build any website and shop imaginable with it, the page builder works fast and well, we are talking about a top theme here. If you want to get acquainted with more elite themes, read our article for the best themes of [2021].



Generatepress vs Enfold conclusion

Thanks for reading this Generatepress vs Enfold comparison to the end. You will agree that both themes are top notch. However, it depends a lot on your wishes which theme is better for you. Generatepress is one of the fastest themes out there, it has everything one could wish for, but don't overdo it with settings. This theme is a pleasure to work with in combination with Elementor Pro.

Enfold on the other hand lets you adjust everything with its many settings without any technical knowledge. This will be nice for someone who wants to build their own site, but companies will benefit better with the lightning-fast theme that looks more professional. In case you are going to provide more than 1 site with a theme, take Generatepress anyway, as a lot of the price goes off for several sites and several years at once.
